    The First Link should be a Sticky or have a Spotlight pointing to it and Neon Signs to where ALL who care about SG's from their First days to the current ones can find info without major hassles or being stiff armed by like it or leave it messages from the powers that be who have made serious. The 2nd should be cherished by all who found it's functionality and simplicity pleasing to frequent and not have to struggle to do simple things like log on using our phones, etc.

    Any other features that we members feel should not go the way of the dinosaur, are also welcomed for suggestion in my thread as I can only speak for myself and have no problem having people add to or thread jack my threads.

    What kind of trouble do you have logging in with your phone?

    Hammer, I go to Everything SG Forum on Google,,,,,,,,,,,,, then open up the home page. Where the Log in thingy is I press my finger to the screen 85 zillion times and it does nothing and I try 18 million different other things like closing out, coming back in, turning phone sideways, making image larger, etc and it only lets me log in arbitrarily when it feels like letting me.

    Try alternate browsers like Miren, xScope or Opera Mini. They all work well on your phone. Also try going directly to http://www.everythingsg.com/index.php?login/ That will take you directly to the login window without having to click. And check Stay Logged In, so you...well, stay logged in.

    No problem. The easiest thing, I would think, would be to just add that page to your Favorites once you have it open. Things should be pretty simple then, should you ever have to log back in. Good luck and let me know if you get stuck...I'm no super genius, but I'll try to help however I can. :thumb:

    Then the reference tab then catalogs then Gibson or Epi.

    Edited as per info from Java.... It seems I found something but not enough somethings to reveal the whole story. It seems the links only go so far and most info has become extinct apparently.

    I have all of the Epiphone catalog pics, plus many that were not in the reference section at all, if Alex doesnt have them anymore. If the reference section is going to be restored, and I hope it will, I am more than happy to send over what I have.

    Seems weird, Java. Thanks for the alert.

    I hunt and pecked my way to these via that route. It does seem like limited info doesn't it? Looks like my reason for posting actually has merit. Where and when should we expect or hope for actual meat and potatoes info we used to have readily available to become so again? What benefit is it that the historical info is no longer visible?

    As I said elsewhere, I think, it's so hard to tell anymore, things that seemed to be there one second are gone the next, but, it is a dessicated archive.

    Here's a missing bit I had in my pic file that you might find useful.
